How to Heal the Gums from Denture Sores

Getting dentures is a big change in your life. On the positive side, you are able to once again enjoy the foods that you may have had to give up. In addition, you will enjoy more self confidence as your appearance will be dramatically improved, and this boost in confidence will carry over into other areas of your life.
On the negative side, using dentures can be challenging at first. You have to learn how to chew and speak with them in, and your gums may be sore until you get used to the dentures. In addition, dentures can cause sores on the gum tissue, and these sores can become quite painful. If you are dealing with denture sores, here are a few tips to help promote healing.

Rinse Regularly with Warm Salt Water


Take your dentures out and rinse your gums with salt water. The salt will help to kill bacteria and promote faster healing. Of course, too much salt can cause other problems, so make sure that your salt water solution is not too strong. Take some warm water, swish it around in your mouth, and spit it out. Repeat a few times, then finish up by rinsing out your mouth with clean water.

Remember to Give Your Gums a Rest


One thing that you simply cannot get around is that your gums will have to get used to the dentures. As such, some soreness will be unavoidable. Still, you can ease the process by taking your dentures out and resting your gums whenever possible. As your gums get used to the dentures, you can wear them for longer periods of time between rests.
Getting new dentures will ultimately prove to be the right choice for you. By following the above suggestions, you can help to ease the transition.
